St. John’s basketball prospect Kyle Cuffe Jr. recently gave an update on his recruitment as the Class of 2022 star brought in a handful of new offers.

Kyle Cuffe Jr. has brought in more offers and provided an update in his recruitment The Short Circuit.

Georgetown, Rutgers, Bryant, and Georgia are the latest schools to offer the Class of 2022 star as he already holds offers from Connecticut, Hofstra, Kansas State, Pittsburgh, Seton Hall, Texas A&M, Providence, Iona, and UCLA among others.

Syracuse is also heavily interested in Cuffe Jr. but has not officially offered the Blair Academy (N.J.) and PSA Cardinals standout.

The 6-foot-1 combo guard is ranked as the No. 60 prospect in the Class of 2022 while being listed as the No. 5 combo guard, and the No. 1 player in the state of New Jersey, according to the 247 Sports Composite Rankings.

Kyle Cuffe Jr. also detailed the latest updates in his recruitment and how he is navigating the coronavirus pandemic to Kate Constable via The Short Circuit.

The full interview can be found below:

St. John’s has made it a priority to land Kyle Cuffe Jr. for a long time period as his father, Kyle Cuffe Sr. played for the Red Storm from 2000-2004.

However, the youngest Cuffe said he’s not too focused on his recruitment yet and will have to sit down and study the schools to see where he is a good fit and that’s where the Red Storm could hold an advantage.

Not only are the Johnnies the home of his father’s team, Kyle Cuffe Jr. said he loves playing defense and he doesn’t love playing in the half court set as he would rather get up and down the court and run the floor as the guard loves to dunk.

That lone sentence screams Mike Anderson’s system and his uptempo style of play and his pressing defensive scheme.

With still a lot of time to go in his recruitment, expect St. John’s to remain heavily involved and connected with Kyle Cuffe Jr. as he progresses to his junior year of high school.
